A Program of Help for Widowed Men and Women

The death of a spouse has been identified as one of the greatest stresses a person can experience. Coping with the emotional upheaval and social readjustment that this crisis brings can be overwhelming and incapacitating.

The purpose of Widowed Persons Service is to help people in the greater Grand Rapids area survive the death of a spouse and grow through the grief process. Through support groups, literature, outreach volunteers, and social events, WPS provides the support our greater society can lack. In this organization, we understand the devastation of grief and the tremendous silence a loss can leave behind. Many of our volunteers, board members, and staff are themselves widowed; we are empathetic to those we service.
